Castleisland Chamber Alliance will host a public meeting with general election candidates to discuss the issues currently facing the Castleisland area. The meeting is scheduled for Thursday February 4th, 8.15pm in the River Island Hotel.

The alliance, which came into being only late last year, wants to find out what those in a position of political influence can do to help this largely self reliant town and district of ours.

“We have invited currently declared general election candidates for the Kerry constituency to discuss job creation, broadband improvements and rural isolation and to present their plans to improve Castleisland and the surrounding areas,” said chamber spokesperson, Jeremy Burke.

“Four of our sitting T.D.s have already confirmed that they will attend and we are expecting confirmation from more candidates over the next few days. Members of the public are encouraged to attend what is sure to be a very informative meeting,” said Mr. Burke.
